The votes have been counted, and Dr. Todd Kostman, Associate Professor in the Department of Biology, is the winner of the 2019 Honors Outstanding Teaching Award.
In a statement released by the University Honors Student Association (UHSA) Board, Dr. Kostman was nominated by Honors students who took Biology 108: Honors Concepts in Biology with him in fall 2019. The Board thanked “all the students who nominated Honors professors and casted their votes. We appreciate your time and involvement in this award process…and [send] very hearty congratulations to Dr. Kostman!”
The Board also congratulated this year’s two other nominees, Dr. Abigail Griswold (Nursing) and Dr. Michael Baltutis (Religious Studies).
Sarah Opolka, UHSA President, will present the award virtually to Dr. Kostman during the Spring 2020 Honors Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 15, at 5:30.
The winner of the Honors Outstanding Teaching Award is determined solely by Honors College students, and the procedures are coordinated and overseen by UHSA Executive Board members. The award has been presented annually since 2008.
